Directory Server Log Analyzer 0.0.1.7 build 307 released

The 0.0.1.7 release of the OpenDS Directory Server Access Log Analyzer has been released at http://kenai.com/projects/dsla. This version is very minimalist, and only supports OpenDS access logs, has no persistent storage, and is probably as buggy as my back deck in summertime. It has been more or less tested with access logs from OpenDS 1.0 and 1.3 collected from some performance testing that was conducted in August 2008 and from interested users. This version reports:

  • count of LDAP operations
  • maximum etime
  • minimum etime
  • average etime
  • number of occurrences of etimes
  • added 'Entire File' section to view file detail
  • added max etime 'Entire File'
  • added min etime 'Entire File'
  • added arithmetic mean of etimes 'Entire File'
  • added geometric mean of etimes 'Entire File'
  • added variance of etimes 'Entire File'
  • added standard deviation of etimes 'Entire File'
  • added code to choose the field width and precision of real numbers on the configuration screen.

If anyone has some access log files from any version of OpenDS, please send me some snippets so that my testing can continue.

Future releases will contain support for various databases (LDAP, BDB, and MySQL), a directory scanner to pick up new access logs generated by OpenDS, and a way to send files to the software without using the administrative interface, and whatever other features that are deemed useful. Also, support for other directory server software such as Sun's DIrectory Server Enterprise Edition and OpenLDAP will be added.
Interested parties should join the mailing lists at http://kenai.com/projects/dsla/lists, report defects at https://kenai.com/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?product=dsla, and contribute code.

2008 Corporate Social Responsibility Report released

Somewhat belatedly, I know that Sun's 2008 Corporate Social Responsibility Report has been released. Far from the usual banal corporate communiques, this one has some interesting language and is a nice read.

DJI, depression, buying

The Dow(n) Jones has the worst month since the Great Depression and companies are trying to buy each other. Coincidence? I do not think so. I think this is a buying opportunity.
